12 Girls Sick in LeRoy, New York. Fall Ill with Neurological, Tourette's Like Symptoms. Concerned Community and Parents Want Ans

Posted Jan 13 2012 12:00am
A summary of the community meeting held Wednesday night at LeRoy High School as it appears on the school's website

A dozen girls who attend the same school in LeRoy, New York have fallen ill with a neurological illness which manifests itself in Tourette's like symptoms of tics and uncontrolled spasms.  During a meeting Wednesday night at LeRoy High School, representatives from the state health department, the Western New York Region of the State Office of Mental Health and the school superintendent had no answers for a very concerned community.  The girls began falling ill last September and, so far, doctors have been unable to tell parents of the ill girls or the public what has caused the 12 girls' symptoms. 

Dr. Gregory Young, Associate Commissioner of the State Health Department said, "We have conclusively ruled out any form of infection or communicable disease and there's no evidence of any environmental factor."

Still,  Young says there is a diagnosis but also tells the public that it is a "national matter" of the HIPPA laws that is preventing them from divulging the diagnosis of the 12 LeRoy High School girls.

Though Dr. Young and the health department say there is a diagnosis, a father of one of the ill girls Jim DuPont says otherwise. He also says that even he has not been told why his daughter and the other girls fell ill, as state health officials are keeping the true cause under wraps.
"Want to know something? If my daughter had a diagnosis and I knew about it, and I would as her parent, I would tell you that!" said DuPont to WHAM 13. "These girls all go to the same neurologist and there is no diagnosis. They don't know what's causing it. That's why we're all here at this meeting."
Above excerpt from CDC Website - Reports of Health Concerns Following HPV Vaccination
The most obvious cause remaining would be a neurological illness brought on by the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine called Gardasil.  Post Gardasil Syndrome, can manifest itself in many ways including neurological. You can see from the excerpt above that Guillain-Barré, the illness my father contracted after taking a Hep-b vaccine, has been reported after the Gardasil vaccination.  There have been a myriad of other neurological problems anecdotally reported as well.

The problem with this scenario is that, as far as I can ascertain, none of the parents have said anything about their daughters receiving the vaccine.
